. in 2011, he returned to germany and he told parliament that religion had lost its meaning for many people. the most recent controversy was the saw the pointing to corruption in the highest echelon of the church. >> all three monotheistic religions go back to the same origin with abraham being a father. nevertheless, relations between judaism, islam, and christianity remain strained. there have been raise of hope and moments of reconciliation. in our next report, we look at relations during the popsy of pope benedict -- papacy of benedict xvi. >> his speech was meant to be clear signal of improved relations. >> shalom. i would like to take this opportunity to assure you that i intend to continue with all my strength toward improved relations with the jewish people. that is the path on which john paul ii took great steps. >> years later, he visited auschwitz. but this was just one side of a tricky balancing act. his actions within the church causing doubts about his commitment to the friendship. in 2007, benedict revived the mass that satisfied a conservative catholics, but it includes the
. >> it is a surprise but also, i guess, a big challenge because use live the pope, according to the catholic religion, he is effectively god's representative on earth. not the sort of job you resign from. if you remember, " john paul ii the died in 2005, the predecessor, it was a very long illness and it was obvious to everyone the pope was not well. but the vatican has a way of keeping things going, keeping up assad going, at least, up until the pope passes on and then a new one is elected. his is a very strange situation. unknown situation. my vatican sources are telling me that it is probably not going to be the same procedure that would have happened had hoped benedick died. using that is followed by a mourning period and then a conclave, calling to run the princes of the church, 100 or so carnots that represent the catholic church from the world. a sealed themselves and decided to should be elected. the conclave obviously will have to happen regardless. we will not have a mourning period because the pope has not passed away. very interesting. we have the date of the resignation, february 28. i t
. many say the church is on a slope to being a third world religion and it's looking to many like the next pontiff will come from latin america or africa. i'd like to see a progressive american become pope and usher this church into the 20th 20th century or maybe the 18th or 19th centuries. if you travel this country and visit churches, as i do, you'll see older congregations and a priest who is not from america more often than not. something that to be done if they want to save this church. i could talk all night about the fact that the c. >> jennifer:celibacy rule is antiquated. it's the man made hang ups of an unauthorized fan club getting in the way of a lot of people. the facebook one religious group in our people are people raised religious and feel spiritual but let down by american religion. >> 24% identify with religion today that they were raised in. i want to ask you about money and the church. i'm going to get skeptical on you. how big a driving force is the ability for a european pope or to a degree an american pope to raise money for the church, where they would avoi
, that the religion is what it is, and you live by the rules because that's what the faith is about. what is faith? what is the church? what should be the right rules? and maybe the expedience of the moments, if we just adjust to the times, you se some sense of what the faith is at its core. that's certainly the orthodox position. on the other hand, you've got lots of catholics from my generation who want to see it be more exclusive and sclus inclus inviting, and would want that from the pope. >> especially when it comes to birth control. mary ann walsh sort of pooh-poohed that, but it is very important to catholic women. almost 90% of catholic women have taken birth control at some point in their lives. >> and there are no women priests or women in positions of power, not to denegrate in any way the nuns and the amazing influence they had on many lives, including mine as a catholic student. but this pope himself, very interesting, called the rottweiler of god, so strict to orthodoxy, he got into a point of confusion, right, because when he was talking about africa, the first time that they talked
cathedral, he renewed respect for his argument that religion should stay at the heart of public life. over the last few years, catholicism has grown in the developing world. in its birthplace of europe, he has found the tides of secularism, all but impossible to stem. the pope defended moslems by quoting historical criticisms of it is lomb. -- islam. he has faced criticism over the handling of the sexual abuse crisis. he has been accused of doing too little to prevent abuse by priests. >> there is a suspicion that they were being shielded by j.p. ii rather than by him. >> he hoped he could build up a struggle church, but in seven years, there was little that he could do. >> for more on what this means, i enjoined by the professor at the catholic university of america. thank you for coming in. were you surprised by this announcement? >> in one sense, yes, because popes do not do this. in another sense, no. pope benedict is a very humble man and realistic man. the job requires energies of mind and body that he no longer has. he has felt free to step down. it is the end of an era, it is the b
the church. >> it is drowning out the voice of religion. >> cardinal worrl thinks it is unlikely the next pope will be an american. >>> a look at this morning's health news. there are two studies out in the journal journal of pediatrics. they give parents some guidance on what kids should watch on tv. one found kids who watch tv excessively are more likely to exhibit antisocial and even criminal behavior in early adulthood. it increased 30% with every hour children watch tv. children should watch no more of two hours of quality programming each day. the second study showed aggressive content leads to aggressive children. the kids in the study were three to five years old. they all watched the same amount of television. the only change was the type of programming. the children who watched the better quality, educational programming were significantly less aggressive than the other group. >>> when we hear all the talks about federal cuts and sequestration there are a few of us preparing for furlough and his cutbacks and another group of us think it has nothing to do with them. coming up at
. but on other hand he's been a blessing. he reminds world reason always needs to be applied to religion and you can never take up the sword or the bomb in our modern world in the name of religion. both of those come from his scholarship. >> here in the bay area issues that we often associate with the catholic church and the catholics discuss gay marriage, women in the priesthood, child abuse by the clergy are sort of preeminent. do you think that is going to be reflected in this conclave or what are their priorities? >> certainly all those things. as i said, when they get together to talk about what are the pressing issues, all of those things are going to ob their minds. there's a clear direction forward for greater transparency, complete transparency in the church working with the state, with respect to sexual abuse in the church. for those other issues, those changes in the order, in social -- [indiscernible] -- church leadership is a spokesperson for the rest of the church. they listen for the sense of the faithful and they make no major changes
books about the revenge of god, that religion is making a comeback as a political player. two-thirds of the 1.2 billion catholics in the world today live outside the west, and most live in societies where religion is critically important, so, yeah, i would say there's still some gas left in the church's political gas tank. >> john, real quickly, only a couple of seconds left here, but what do you know specifically in regards to what they are looking for for a pope? stances on abortion, same-sex marriage, that kind of thing. >> reporter: well, all these cardinals have been appointed by john paul and benedict so they are all in agreement on the main. of course they are looking for a hole guy but three things quickly, one, somebody with a global vision, two, somebody who is a missionary, who can take the church's message to the street and, three, somebody who can fix the perceived internal governance problems in the vatican itself. you roll all that up, you probably have a pope. >> john allen, so good to get your insight. thank you so much for being with us today. >> sure. >> and
. another issue is how to have dialogue, with religions, the great rise of islam. how are we going to truly dialogue with these religions, in order to reach a truth, the truth, which we believe as roman catholics. and i think a third issue is, many of the problems that the world faces, the church too needs to tackle. for example, beginning of life issues, end of life issues. how do we deal with marriage? how do we deal with the sanctity of marriage. how do we deal with moral issues. how do we deal with the economic crisis? that's what people want to hear. that's what people need to hear in the world we're living in, in order that we give them hope. i think i heard something that i think is very important, when you said, chris, pope john paul ii opened people's hearts. pope benedict filled people's hearts. he was a theologian. so now, what i think we need is somehow who allows people to take what they have received and now use it in their lives for the good of others. >> monsignor, thank you for coming over. liz lev, thank you, they will be staying with us and we'll be talking to them later
merry christmas at christmas time, doesn't matter whether they're jewish or any religion, it's a salutation, a greeting of goodwill. we've got to get over this sensitivity. you make 10 billion dollars, you put in a billion. you make $10 you put in 1. of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. [applause] but now, now, some people say, they say well, that's not fair. because it doesn't hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars as much as the guy who made 10. where does it say you have to hurt the guy. >> megyn: and now brad, a former deputy assistant to president george w. bush and dan, the president of gotham ghost writers. an interesting question posed by miss crowly whether it was disrespectful and some on the panel, say it was disrespectful for the doctor to speak this way before the president at the national prayer breakfast. dan, your thoughts? >> i teach a class at nyu and the first thing i tell my students he when you're talking about judging ethical behavior context is the most important thing. if dr. karr son said this at rnc convention at the heritage foundatio
faith and reason and the role of religion in a post-modern sectarian world, and even many of his fiercest critics would express admiration for his intellectual depth. as a ceo, as a business manager, the verdict is much more mixed. many critics would say he never got his hands successfully around the sexual abuse scandal. there was, of course, a spectacular vatican leak scandal that included the arrest of his own butler and created disarray and palace intrigue. there was a kind of chronic inability to get the trains to run on time. >> barbara, what do you think? >> reporter: well, obviously john is much better to speak about the ideology than i am, but think he also will be remembered by the scandals. even going to the american nuns and clamping down on them. there are a lot of people who may not be unhappy to see a change in the vatican. but, you know, the vatican butler scandal, the sex scandals, protesters in st. peter's square, you know, things like that that have really marked the last several years, i think, are going to be remembered by a lot of people when they come to st
religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
's an election, consisting of the cardinals, the religion, will meet in rome to decide on a new pope. that will happen before the end of march. again, there had been reports in the past couple of months that his health had been failing, that he had difficulty reading text, and he had in the past suggested if popes had problem in office with their health, that, in fact, that they should step down. he followed his own message. in fact, he will be stepping down less than eight years into his papacy. to show how historic this is, guys, the last time this happened was 600 years ago. that happened to be pope gregory in the year 1415. we just heard a press conference from vatican officials in the past ten minutes or so and they looked surprised. they said they got this information this morning. so secrecy is the name of the game in the vatican. benedict is his name. he is a german. he was a strong conservative. they called him the enforcer in the church prior to becoming a pope. the pope's rotweiler, referring to a dog, that's how he was referred to as well. the choice of ratzinger as pope
campaigned. >> steve did all day. >> i'm the right age. >> call him now? >> and the right religion. >> 42 years. you know, what's interesting to me about this is you're right. you know, benedict is mr. inside and his election, first of all, there were so many reasons why it was sort of doubtful, he was an unlikely choice. likely but unlikely in 2005. election was made possible by rules change that pope john paul ii put in place in 1996 and took the old super jorkt with two thirds of the cardinals to agree an they have as many ballots it took and he said after 30 ballots, a mere 30 ballots, majority rule wins and when somebody gets a majority, end the process because the majority hangs on and then win and probably enabled benedict to win in 2005. almost unanimous and four ballots and that's it. he did away with the rules change and so we have reverted the two thirds majority and it's the only way that pope john paul ii would have become the pope. there was sort of two candidates duking it out and he was the compromise choice and the unlikely, nobody thought him, polish guy with a chance. a

the relationship between reason and faith and the place of religion in a secular world. i think the truth, judy, is all of of those things have validity. all of them add up to the full picture of a pope who had his strengths and his weaknesses. i think will undoubtedly be remembered for both. >> woodruff: monsignor hilgartner all of that plays into the question of what role will he play in the selection of his successor? he won't have a vote but he selected more than half of the cardinals who will be doing the picking. >> he has selected more than half. there was a question as to whether or not he would participate. and the holy sea clarified this morning in the middle of all the other news that he would not participate. but his influence is clear. i think even his statement this morning about recognizing that there are major things that the church needs to address and do that he doesn't feel that he has the stamina to be able to accomplish really sets the stage for the cardinals when they gather to begin to look at and discuss and reflect on what those issues are. as they then move into the co
't strong enough. he defended muslims with the speech defending violent religion. among other gestures pope benedict made blue mosque. the biggest scandal he had to deal with were the widespread sandals of sex abuse against clergy. critics say he didn't do enough. formal apologies and probes in the u.s.s. ireland and elsewhere. he also had to deal with a but butler who stole documents alleging corruption in the vatican. he later pardoned him. benedict saw himself as a quiet intellectual. still he made 25 international trips. well received by crowds and tweeting spiritual messages. rolling platform to roll through st. peters. all of this leading up to momentous decision to step down when he felt he was no longer up for the job. >> pope benedict will not be involved in next month's con conclave of cardinals. he might have a silent vote. he had a big hand of choosing many of those cardinals. bill? >> greg palkot reporting live tonight from london. the pope's replacement could make history as well. experts tell us one of the top contenders is peter cardinal circleson from the country of gahanna

. they were released several hours later. i don't care much for people who use religion as a cloak to justify hatred, injustice and fear and i can't imagine god, should he or she or it exist, does either. i am so proud of my sister and niece for nighting for what they believe in, by having nerve to pray at a wall of prayer while being female. sara sidner is joining us in jerusalem. plain to us the significance of this, being at the wailing wall and what women are wearing and where they are praying. why does that matter? >> reporter: look, it's the most holy jewish site for prayer and basically what these women want is equal access to all of the nominations and those who want to practice their religion at the wall. basically they have been doing this for the past two decades. this is not a new act by these women. they call themselves women of the wall. they go down, wear the shawls, pray at the wall and they say they should be allowed to do that. the high court has put out a ruling basically saying they can go down to the property but the government has made a separate area that is not at the
